Markham is a city in Cook County, Illinois, United States. The population was 12,620 at the 2000 census.

Markham, at the southern tip of Lake Michigan, had been a crossroad for early pioneers. In 1861, a treaty was made with the Ottawa, Chippewa and Potawatomi Native Americans which ceded a corridor of land located between the mouths of the Chicago and Calumet Rivers to the settlers. The southern boundary, known as the Indian Boundary Line, was to run along a line which is now Interstate 57.

The village of Markham was incorporated in 1925 with a population under 300. In the mid-1930s, the Croissant Park subdivision was built and increased the population from 349 to 1,388. After World War II, Markham's population doubled to 2,753 residents by 1950. The village developed into a bedroom community as residents sought homes, not industry. An airport developed at 165th Street and Kedzie Avenue, and was the nearest field to Chicago. The airport site was located nearby what is now the Cook County Sixth Circuit Courthouse. On August 24, 1967 the Village of Markham was incorporated as a city.

In 1860, a German immigrant named Lawrence Roesner made his way to the southern boundary and settled on land located in the northwest corner of Markham. He brought with him six seedlings from the Black Forest of Germany and planted them along the Indian Boundary Line. This "Lone Pine Tree" was adopted as the official city symbol in 1985. The lone survivor of six pine trees brought from the Black Forest in 1860 died in 1986. The nMarkham City Council appropriated money to get a replacement tree from the Black Forest, which the Markham Garden Club planted that year.
